  • 19-Jun-2011 09:55 EDT

Lockheed Martin received a $58.6 million contract from the U.S. Marine Corps for new systems, equipment, and support services associated with the Vehicle Optic Sensor Systems II (VOSS II) and Portable Rapid Deployment Surveillance Systems (PRDSS). The Gyrocam VOSS, a vehicle-mounted sensor system, can be mast-mounted on virtually any land vehicle or expeditionary system for remote surveillance needs, providing high-resolution color, night vision, and thermal sensors in a 15-in class gyro-stabilized gimbal. The Gyrocam PRDSS, a free-standing, portable, rapid deployment surveillance system, can be moved and set up in urban, rural, and extreme terrain environments and provides command personnel a bird's eye view of activity in the area. Under the contract, Lockheed Martin will provide 110 VOSS II and 30 PRDSS, plus additional field services and equipment in support of these systems. The equipment will be produced at the Lockheed Martin Gyrocam Systems facility in Sarasota, FL, and the period of performance will continue through March.
